Deepstream 6.1.1 - cuda installation issues

**• Hardware Platform: 3060 in a laptop **
• NVIDIA GPU Driver Version: 515.65.07

Hello, I’m following a dgpu guide here:

I managed to install a working 515.65.07 driver from graphics-drivers repo
(I have no idea where to install 515.65.01 - i did found a .run file, but I got a recommendation to not use .run files earlier on these forums).

I have been successfully using driver 520 with Deepstream, but I’m just trying to setup a few machines that need to be on exact version, and - for max stability - exactly what the guide recommends.

My problem is that I cant install cuda from a local repo
I did download this: cuda-repo-debian11-11-7-local_11.7.1-515.65.01-1_amd64.deb
and if I follow the guide as is, it just drops my driver, installs 520 and cuda 11.8

if i specify “apt install cuda-11-7” - it still tries to drop my current driver and install 520, and also - re-download all the packages from the online repo.

How do I just install the packages from the .deb file?

I’ve managed to setup apt to use the local repositiory like this:

dpkg -i cuda-repo-debian11-11-7-local_11.7.1-515.65.01-1_amd64.deb
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cuda

sudo add-apt-repository “deb file:///var/cuda-repo-debian11-11-7-local /”
sudo apt-key add /var/cuda-repo-debian11-11-7-local/
sudo apt update

but now it cant install the packages due to hard dependency on the driver version (515.65.01)
which I dont think is available as a meta-package…

I think I’ll try a run file, but it will probably just ruin my ubuntu, since it’s an optimus laptop.

You can use docker ( DeepStream | NVIDIA NGC) if you don’t want to change the driver. You need to follow the installation guide exactly in order to install DeepStream on your laptop.

thank you. Docker is probably the best way to go. Will try.
